California Memorial Stadium
Since it opened in the fall of 1923, California Memorial Stadium has produced scores of unforgettable memories for generations of Golden Bears. From the Wonder Teams of the 1920s to the Pappy Waldorf years mid-century to the current success attained under head coach Jeff Tedford, the facility has treated fans of all ages to many of the greatest moments in the history of Cal football. It stands as one of the most enduring symbols of the University of California campus, has served as a gathering point for students, alumni, faculty, staff and other supporters for nearly 90 years.
This fall, the historic building begins a new era following an extensive seismic retrofit and renovation that brings it up to modern standards for fans and student-athletes alike, creating a more enjoyable environment for the hundreds of thousands of people who visit and partake in games every year - all while maintaining the architecture and character of the celebrated stadium.
Major construction on the $321 million project got underway in December 2010, and barely 21 months later, the Golden Bears are able to call Memorial Stadium home once again.
